Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – As Malaysia ramps up its vaccination efforts, airlines have been preparing themselves to aid customers on their travel plans across the nation this year with the launch of different travel passes.
Last March, airasia has released its ASEAN unlimited pass, and this time Malaysia Airlines has also jumped in with the latest ‘MHflypass’.
‘MHflypass’ is a product that offers the option to secure customers’ travels for the year at an affordable price. It aims to extend ‘value-for-flights’ to customers, enabling them to purchase flight coupons at a fixed attractive price that gives them full flexibility, convenience, and control over their spending for the flights.
The ‘MHflypass’ is subdivided into three convenient options for passengers based on their destination origin, allowing them to choose the zone that matches their travel needs best. The Zone 1 option allows passengers to fly from Peninsular Malaysia destinations to Kuala Lumpur and vice versa, as well as flights between destinations within Sabah and Sarawak, while Zone 2 option offers passengers the opportunity to fly to Kuala Lumpur from destinations in Sabah and Sarawak, alongside flights between destinations within Peninsular Malaysia, with a connection through Kuala Lumpur. And lastly, Zone 3 option allows passengers to fly from Sabah and Sarawak to Peninsular Malaysia destinations, with a connection in Kuala Lumpur.
Each set of ‘MHflypass’ comes with six flight coupons, equivalent to the option of three return or six one-way flights, to destinations across Malaysia throughout a period of one year, at only RM699. Early birds can grab the ‘MHflypass’ at a promotional price as low as RM499 for the domestic pass, valid for purchase until 2 May 2021 for all-year-round travel dates in 2021 and beyond.
Furthermore, the members of the airline’s frequent flyer program Enrich who will purchase the ‘MHflypass’ can receive 50% bonus points upon purchase, which can be used to redeem amazing promotions with Enrich brand partners or for discounts or free travel.
“We have created this new product to spur domestic travel and to make it more attractive for our passengers to catch up on all the traveling they have missed, and at the same time, assuring them the peace of mind to fly with us with our #FlyConfidently measures put in place,” said Lau Yin May, the group chief marketing and customer experience officer of Malaysia Airlines.
On 16 April 2021, Malaysia Airlines has also announced the extension of rebooking travel flexibility that offers passengers a longer ticket validity with a one-time fare difference and service fee waiver, following the prolonged travel restrictions imposed by countries and interstate travel for domestic destinations.
